Brunch is one of my favorite things about the weekend - there's just something so relaxing about easing into the morning and enjoying a delicious meal. And when it comes to weekend brunch, it's hard to choose between pancakes, French toast, and waffles.
Personally, I'm a fan of all three, but if I had to pick just one, I think I'd have to go with French toast. So today, I wanted to share my recipe for protein French toast sticks that are not only delicious, but also packed with protein to fuel your workouts.
To make these protein French toast sticks, you'll need the following ingredients:
- 1/3 cup egg whites
- 1/2 scoop of protein powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- A sprinkle of salt
- A dash of cinnamon
- 1/4 cup of milk (I like to use fairlife core power for a little extra protein)
- Bread of your choice (the sturdier the bread, the fluffier the French toast)
To start, add all of the ingredients into a flat bowl. Make sure to add the dry ingredients first, then the wet ingredients to prevent too much clumping. Once everything is mixed together, slice each slice of bread into four long pieces. Dip each piece of bread into the egg mixture on both sides, making sure it's fully saturated.
Next, preheat a pan over medium heat and coat it with nonstick spray. Add in the dipped French toast sticks and cook them on both sides until they're brown and golden (about 2-3 minutes per side). And that's it - your protein French toast sticks are ready to be enjoyed!
I don't know what it is about cutting your food into fun shapes, but it just makes it taste better. So I'm confident that you're going to love these protein French toast sticks. They're perfect for a weekend brunch, and they're also macro-friendly and packed with protein to fuel your workouts. Happy Brunchin', everyone!
